Domestic Long Hair (DLH) – Maroubra

Our loving little cat Rosie needs a loving home. We have two cats and her brother is too rough with her. We also have lots of cats in the neighbourhood who fight with her so we feels it’s best she goes to another home. She needs a safe loving environment like an apartment where she won’t have to worry about other cats.

Sweetie: adorable male domestic long hair / mixed

Sweetie was desexed and microchipped on 15 Aug and I would like him to find a new owner, due to personal reasons. Check out Jackson Galaxy videos for lots of helpful information on how to care for a pet well. He is an indoor cat for his own safety. He is very friendly with people and will get along with other cats, although he can be a bit too friendly which may cause other cats to get on their guard. Cost covers microchipping and desexing. You will also get 3 litter boxes with litter, a Da Bird feather wand toy with 20 different attachments, cat carrier, cat bowls, puzzle feeders, a leash and harness, and a cat backpack. Optionally, you can also take several boxes to use for catification (as a way to provide height for resting on, and also to jump up to higher places). I found him on the street at the beginning of July (2023) and took him in. Please contact me if you would like to be the new owner of Sweetie.

The Ultimate Domestic Long Hair (DLH) Guide

About Domestic Long Hair (DLH)

True to their name, Domestic Long Hair cats flaunt long, flowing fur. Their coats vary in length but always exceed that of shorthair or medium hair cats. The term “Domestic Long Hair” (DLH) encompasses any long-haired cat not belonging to a recognised breed.

Grooming

Grooming

When it comes to grooming a Domestic Long Hair cat, they require more attention than their shorthaired or medium haired cousins. They need to be brushed and groomed regularly.

Origins

Similar to Domestic Shorthair and Domestic Medium Hair cats, the Domestic Long Hair acts as a catch-all term for a type of cat that includes various breeds. Without specific physical traits common to all, Domestic Long Hair cats can display any colour, pattern, coat length, and texture.

Introduced to Europe in the 16th century, these cats have since spread worldwide, becoming the third most popular type of cat. Persian and Angora breeds trace their lineage back to the DLH, evolving into distinct breeds.

Key Characteristics Of Domestic Long Hair (DLH)s

Are Domestic Long Hair (DLH)s Family-Friendly?

Absolutely. Domestic Long Hair cats typically exude affection, often seeking laps to curl up in and enjoying petting and scratching.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Domestic Long Hair (DLH)s may suffer from:

Cancer

Hyperthyroidism

Obesity

Nature / Temperament

Most Domestic Long Hair cats are gentle and affectionate, thriving on human companionship. They usually litter box train easily and get along well with other household pets. Their curiosity fuels lifelong playfulness, although some may be timid around strangers, a trait that varies greatly.

Suitable Environment

Domestic Long Hair cats adapt well to various environments. Their ideal home includes climbing spaces, cosy nooks, and ample windows for sunlight. They aren’t overly demanding but do require care and attention.

Other Considerations

  • The physical traits of Domestic Long Hair cats are influenced by the genetic pool of their geographic area.
  • Their fur is ideal for hair donation, aiding in oil spill cleanups.
  • Keeping them indoors is advisable, as their hunting prowess can impact local wildlife.

How can I take good care of my Domestic Long Hair (DLH)?

Nutrition

The nutritional needs of Domestic Long Hair cats mirror those of other cats. As obligate carnivores, their diet must primarily consist of animal-based proteins. In the wild, cats hunt small prey like rodents or birds. 

Domestic Long Hair cats thrive on high-protein commercial dry or canned wet food. Ensure constant access to clean drinking water. Consult your veterinarian for specific nutrition advice.

Grooming

Regular grooming prevents the fur of a Domestic Long Hair cat from matting and tangling. Use a wide-toothed comb to remove knots and tangles.

Exercise

Moderate exercise keeps a Domestic Long Hair cat healthy. Provide a scratching post and toys to stimulate activity. A cat tower offers climbing opportunities and cosy hiding spots.

Training

Domestic Long Hair cats have no special training needs and are relatively low-maintenance. Litter box training and grooming session acclimation are essential. They can learn basic commands like sit, stay, come, and even fetch with consistent training.

This information is general and should not be used for adoption or purchasing decisions. Consult an expert for detailed care and requirements of the breed.
